The @CIA's #InspectorGeneral has taken over a year to clear the release of a House Intelligence Committee report which contradicts the key conclusion of the intelligence community assessment on #Russian interference in the 2016 election. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/cia-watchdog-s…
The January 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA), prepared at the behest of President @BarackObama, claimed that #Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump.
The House Intelligence Committee’s public report on #Russia had already challenged the analytic tradecraft behind this central claim and suggested that the process of arriving at the assessment was not free of political interference. republicans-intelligence.house.gov/uploadedfiles/…

News of Trump removing Glenn Fine as Acting DoD IG and from the coronavirus oversight committee has reminded people about the importance of independent IGs. But Trump’s assault on the #InspectorGeneral community actually began with Fine three years ago. /1 citizensforethics.org/glenn-fine-cor…
In early 2017 Trump withdrew the names of four #InspectorGeneral nominees from Senate consideration. One of them was Acting DoD IG Glenn Fine who was previously confirmed as DOJ IG, serving in the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. /2 federalnewsnetwork.com/management/201…
Another name Trump withdrew in 2017 was Elizabeth Field to be #InspectorGeneral of the Office of Personnel Management. That position is still vacant. OPM is now in disarray with two Trump appointed directors leaving after less than a year on the job. /3 federalnewsnetwork.com/opm/2020/03/ca…

A new order by the #FISA Court sets forth and reviews specific changes in the wake of gov't #Wiretapping abuses. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/foreign-intell…
The most noteworthy item bars the @FBI and @TheJusticeDept officials who were involved in the controversial #Wiretaps from “drafting, verifying, reviewing, or submitting” new #FISA applications while their actions are under review.
The @JusticeOIG flagged #FISAabuse in the wiretapping of @CarterWPage. The #FISA Court and #DOJ have determined that at least 2 of the 4 wiretaps against Page were improper and are invalid.

An anonymous #Whistleblower whose complaint prompted an #ImpeachmentInquiry misled the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) about his or her communications with Congress, according to a source familiar with details of the complaint. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/whistleblower-…
The source told @EpochTimes that the #Whistleblower didn’t check the box to disclose whether they previously communicated the allegations to “Congress or congressional committees.”
Not checking the box is misleading, if not outright false, since @RepAdamSchiff admitted that his staff had communicated with the #Whistleblower prior to the filing of the complaint.

The misleading answer on the application may put the whistleblower in legal peril.

News Analysis 🔎 | The latest leak to @nytimes on May 3 revealed that yet another @FBI informant, #AzraTurk, had targeted @GeorgePapa19, an aide to then-candidate Donald J. Trump’s campaign.

Article by Nick Short @PoliticalShort (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/key-questions-…
#AzraTurk—whose real name still unknown—claimed she was a research assistant wanting to meet with #Papadopoulos to talk about foreign policy.

In reality, she was sent by the @FBI to gather intelligence about whether or not the Trump campaign was working with the #Russian gov't.
#AzraTurk appears to have flirted with #Papadopoulos, sending him emails after their meeting saying it was the “highlight” of her trip to #London and that she was “excited about what the future holds for us :).”
